Поддомкрачивание / posting and emergency transportation of the car

Poddomkrachivaniye by means of a regular jack when changing wheels

The regular jack is intended only for short-term raising of the car when replacing a wheel; before performance of any works under the car it is necessary to establish it on special props!

The spare wheel, jack and key for wheel nuts are stored in the luggage compartment.

Office for tools
1 — the Spare wheel
2 — the Bag with tools
3 — the jack Handle
4 — the Jack
5 — the Key for wheel nuts


  1. For access to office for tools lift a cover. The lifted cover can be fixed by means of the hook located on its lower party.
  1. Park the car on the flat horizontal platform, whenever possible with a hard coating.
  2. Cock the parking brake and install the AT selector lever in situation "P".
  3. In case of need expose a sign of an emergency stop.
  4. Prop up antiretractable boots the wheel located on diagonal from a subject to replacement.

At implementation of the procedure on a bias it is necessary to enclose boots under both wheels of a serviceable axis from descent.

  1. Prepare the necessary tool (a jack, a balloon key) and a spare wheel.
  2. At the corresponding complete set take off a protective cap of a disk, then give nuts of fastening of the failed wheel.
  1. Get a jack head under the corresponding point, - track that the jack settled down strictly vertically, and his heel rested all the surface against soil, - at friable soil enclose a suitable lining under a heel (it is useful to have a piece of a wide board in the car in the winter). You watch as well that the groove in a head of a jack entered the corresponding cuts in a car threshold.

Regardless of existence of a bias the jack always has to hold strictly vertical position!

  1. Working with the jack handle, raise the car, - the damaged wheel has to come off the earth completely.
  2. Turn out wheel nuts and make replacement of a wheel.
  3. Check pressure of a rating of the established wheel, in case of need make the corresponding adjustment (see Specifications to the Head Governing bodies and methods of operation).
  4. Remove the removed wheel and the tool on the regular places.
  1. In conclusion evenly tighten wheel nuts in a diagonal order with effort of 103 Nanometers.

Posting of the car

For posting of the car the elevator with four paws resting against reference points for a screw jack is used (see an illustration).
At installation of the elevator special laying is used.

Paws of the elevator should be centered rather reference points on a longitudinal axis of the car (to the left and to the right), and for alignment of the elevator of rather cross axis of the car it is necessary to adhere to the following sequence:

  1. Even the edges of a rubber slip on an elevator paw with bottom edges (A) of special laying;
  2. Even the upper edge (B) of special laying with a forward cut in an installation site of a screw jack;
  3. Remove laying.

Transportation of the emergency car

Transportation on a tow truck platform
It is the most reasonable to transport the emergency car on the tow truck. Such transportation of all-wheel drive cars can be made only with a separation of all wheels from the earth: or method of full loading of the faulty car on a tow truck platform,

or having placed one axis on the suspended shelf of the tow truck, and other axis – on the special cart.

At the same time the parking brake has to be released.
For fastening of the emergency vehicle on a platform of the tow truck it is necessary to use fixing eyes.

Do not use towing eyes for this purpose.



  1. If it is not possible to avoid towage, it is the most reasonable to make it on a rigid hitch.
  2. Before towage on the emergency car it is necessary to turn the ignition key in the provision of "ACC" or "ON", to transfer the AT selector lever to situation "N" and to release the parking brake.
  1. It is necessary to hook on a towing element (a cable or a bar) only for a special towing eye, but not for a bumper or elements of a suspension bracket at all.
  1. At towage on a flexible hitch use the cable which is only specially intended for this purpose. Use of modern synthetic materials allowed to market towing cables of the elastic design minimizing danger of breaks as a result of hit of a sling under wheels of the towed car.
  2. The driver of the towing car has to try to move as much as possible evenly, smoothly releasing coupling at gear shifting and, especially, at start-off from the place.
  3. At control of the towed vehicle you watch that during the movement the cable constantly remained tense, try not to allow sharp breakthroughs and arrivals on a proslablenny cable.
  4. Remember that at the switched-off engine efficiency of braking of the car considerably decreases because the vacuum amplifier of brakes ceases to function. At the same time it is necessary to squeeze out a pedal of a working brake with much big, than usually by effort; when performing maneuvering the bigger effort should be put also to a steering wheel since the pump of the amplifier of steering will also not function.
  5. Before a start of motion drivers of both vehicles (towing and towed) should coordinate among themselves a route.
  6. The movement has to be carried out along the shortest route, with a speed no more than 50 km/h, on distance no more than 50 km and with observance of traffic regulations. Avoid sharp braking, accelerations and excess maneuvering. Remember that at towage of the car on the region of the dirt road there is always a danger of demolition on a roadside.
  7. Before towage check the level of transmission liquid (see the Head Nastroyki and routine maintenance of the car), - at the insufficient ATF level, it is necessary to modify it, or to tow the car only with the driving wheels which are torn off from the earth.

Towage for the purpose of start of the engine

Start of the engine of the cars equipped with AT, method of towage or pushing is not possible, - in case of need use the auxiliary power supply.
